We have now left the A90 and are travelling along the A975 and have passed through the town of Newburgh, across the Ythan river to reach Forvie. Continuing along the A975, we take a little 1.5 mile detour along the B9003 to Collieston - a magnificent former fishing village.
The next couple of posts will focus on this lovely picturesque village.

Collieston has a lovely beach, a harbour and one shop selling ice cream, coffee and sweets/candies. Unfortunately, it is closed during the winter season. Surrounded by coastal walks and rocks and rock pools, it is an ideal place for a family with small children.

Collieston really is a picturesque place but it is time to move on north. Before we do, here are some parting pics...

As we move north, we come to Old Slains and the ruins of the Original Slains Castle. To reach it, you new to follow a pretty rough track at a very slow speed...

We are currently following the Coastal Trail North from Aberdeen, along the A90 and the A975. Before resuming this trail, let's back-track a little bit. We'll head back to Collieston for some more pics....

Finally, we leave Collieston and rejoin the Coastal Trail North. It is a picturesque drive which proves fruitful if you can make the time to explore.
There are hidden lochs and estuaries which attract many bird watchers.
